Personal Quotes (10)

Life is a gift. Never take it for granted.
I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise... it's a consistent reward for victory!
To believe in yourself and to follow your dreams, to have goals in life and a drive to succeed, and to surround yourself with the things and the people that make you happy - this is success!
Maturity is the fine line between life and experience.
Too many people go through life waiting for things to happen instead of making them happen!
The world is not interested in what we do for a living. What they are interested in is what we have to offer freely - hope, strength, love and the power to make a difference!
Nothing beats having a genuine compassion for human souls. If there is one thing I know, it's that people want to be acknowledged; they want to be heard; and above all, they want to be appreciated.
If you want success, then don't rely on other people to do what YOU can do!
When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth and self-acceptance. The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.
Envy is the result of the effect that you have made on someone else's life, whether they want to accept it or not.
